Okay, maybe it isn’t snow, but the jacaranda flowers really are blanketing everything. Each morning I wake up and look out and my back garden has a fresh coating of purple. It’s enchanting in a Disney movie kind of way.
There’s a local legend about Sydney’s prolific jacaranda trees. Apparently many years ago, hospitals on the north shore of Sydney used to hand out jacaranda saplings to new mothers. The mothers would plant the baby trees in their backyards and watch their trees and children grow up together. And, according to this legend, that’s why Sydney’s north shore is coated in purple right now.
